Night Photography

Well I have been waiting for conditions to present themselves for the opportunity to take some night shots of the Wheal Prosper Engine House at Rinsey on the Cornish coast.  Did a stop of at Marazion on the way to have few shots there also. Mean't to be a test run really as we had  clear skies and no wind, but no moonlight (a little would of helped.)  All exposure were about 20-30 seconds and the buildings where appropriate were painted with a torch for a few seconds, will likely try and flash next time. Also may try a double exposure one for the sky and one for the engine house and combine the two later. It's just a case of a bit of trial and error etc until a satisfactory result is achieved. Got to admit though quite pleased with last nights results so far.

You did a good job catching the stars Bob, no trailing on them either, I did a bit last year and like you say its all a bit of trial and error, good fun though, especially when it all comes together as in your shots.
